Star Wars: Battlefront II will get General Grievous and more Clone Wars era DLC

Since Battlefront II launched, EA has been criticized for its service offering which hasn't really been delivering the content the Star Wars franchise is known for. Some of the series' biggest heroes have been omitted, and the most famous battlefields have been forgotten. After a barrage of requests on EA's social media platform, the studio has finally caved and decided to give fans what they've been asking for.

Announced at E3 2018, EA revealed that Battlefront II will be getting new heroes and villains, including General Grievous, (young) Anakin Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Count Dooku. The planet Geonosis will also feature, in what EA is calling the biggest map in Battlefront franchise history. The new features are set to land sometime later this year.

You can grab Battlefront II for around $35.

  • Doesn't begin to make up for the launch debacle but at least it's progress! Things are looking up!
  • New content does look promising and maybe they can improve the game's stability and shorten load times as well. Add a few weapons and character appearances would be nice too. Not sure why only female characters are snipers and Imperial Officers.
